Presently, I am contemplating sleep
The kind that wraps me in a delicious dream,
Takes me to another dimension and
Pauses the check-offs on my to-do laundry list.
A few moments ago, I read through
Several slices of familiar and new-to-me writers.
Time moves on, put down the pen, fall into a deep sleep,
The kind that takes me to another place and time.
But right now, I realize my fingers are continuing to
Rhythmically type words that awaken my senses.
Inspiration flows postponing thoughts of sleep.
I find solace in the click, click tempo of one more thought.
Without delay, there is a soft nudge to rest.
The eye patch is no longer needed and sleep is calling.
I anticipate a restful sleep, the kind that refreshes the mind.
I wonder who else is writing late-night thoughts.
Perhaps this song will help me sleep.
Thank you Two Writing Teachers for this daily meeting place to connect with a community of reflective writers.
